UEFA says its disciplinary panel decided Ibrahimovic should miss only the first leg of the quarterfinals for a tackle on Chelsea midfielder Oscar last week.

Aurier, who was injured and missed the last-16, second-leg match in London, later posted a celebratory and offensive video on Facebook. The Ivory Coast defender's comments about Netherlands referee Bjorn Kuipers in a video posted on Facebook were judged an "insulting act" by UEFA.

PSG will learn its quarterfinals opponent when the draw is made Friday.
